Some of us will have to make a first move towards a new economic system, and I am someone who has heard the calling for a few years now. It can be hard to try and opt out of an old system, with one part still left in it while at the same time entering a new one. But I believe it can’t be done unless some of us simply go out and start a new movement. The old system is built on lack, whereas the new one is built upon the idea and the Knowing that there is enough. Without this inner knowing that it is so, it is even harder to make the move. My core belief is that I will not believe it when I see it, but instead I have to actually believe it first – then I will see it. It takes radical faith, in other words, and perhaps some madness as well. I suppose that makes me fit for the job.
I have finished my book that deals with this overall topic – Holy Place. The abundance of finite resources – and it is available digitally for anyone who is interested in reading what I have to share. My intention is to extend it with another chapter and make a printed second edition available next year if you prefer to read a ‘real book’ – I know I do.
In 2023 I will start offering my services on a donation basis once a week so that all kinds of people – irrespective of income – will be able to afford it. This is something I have wanted to do for a while, but the timing hasn’t been right. I’ve also had a pattern of systematically draining my own resources on work that isn’t mine to do, which has blocked my ability to share what I am here to share. What do I mean by this? Well, when I insist on performing tasks that I am ill-equipped to do but continue doing from a place of guilt, false loyalty or fear (what are others going to think of me if I say no?) or simply out of habit and conditioning, then I am draining my energy reservoir – it’s a bit like vacuuming the house without plugging it in, it leaves me exhausted and the job is very poorly done. If, on the other hand, I am navigating towards my natural strengths – doing work that I love doing, that come easily and that makes me happy and fulfilled, then I can give abundantly and it will be better for everyone involved. This means we have to start getting really honest with ourselves. What is my REAL job? And if I am not currently doing it, then why is that?
I have decided to provide my services 1:1 once a week, because it isn’t the only job I came here to do, but a part of it. My main source of income will have to come from another source. I honestly don’t know where it is going to come from, I just know I need more days of my week that are not involving working with other humans directly. I love meeting people – when I can afford it. In other words, when I’ve been giving myself enough solitude so that my battery is recharged again. I’m an introvert that often appears to be sociable and chatty, but spending time with others when I am not in balance is an energy drain for me.
I feel called to continue the work I started with this blog in January this year of 2022, exploring what life conditions are favorable for highly sensitive and neurodivergent humans such as myself, and how the needs of our type of human can be better accommodated in society at large. I don’t think such accommodations would conflict with anyone, irrespective of neurotype, as I think it would just mean a softer, more fair and accepting environment for everyone.
Thank you for reading my words, and since it is Christmas Eve I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I hope to see you in 2023.
With Love, Ellinor Cajsen Maria
